Morphology of motor end-plate and its size relation to the muscle fibre size in the amphibian submandibular muscle.


The morphology of neuromuscular junction in the amphibian submandibular muscle has been examined both light and electron microscopically. Despite the differentiation of muscle fibres into types, both the structure and ultrastructure of the motor end plates was found fairly uniform in the examined species. The strongly positive correlation between the motor end plate surface area and muscle fibre diameter was found in Triturus and Rana. Some aspects of the motor end plate morphology are discussed in connection with the results of the author's physiological and morphological observations obtained formerly.
